FORTUNES OF THE PRESIDENT INVOLVED Lively Contest Is Also Scheduled for the Consrresslonal omtnstln In Eleventh District Supreme Court Hnllnics. (From a Staff Correspondent.) DES MOINES. Jan. 16. (Special.) It Is now given out that there Is to be no quar ter given In the fight which Is coming on for control of the Iowa delegation and nil possibility of compromise Is gone. There will be a fight between the factions repre sented by J. W. Blythe and those of Gov ernor Cummins. While here thla week Mr. Blytho gave it out cold that he wns a can didate for delegute-ot-large to the conven tion nnd dewired to represent Iowa on the resolutions committee nnd that he would make n fight to prevent the governor going on the delegation nt nil. The position takea In Governor Cummins' Inaugural address was. In fact, a response to this defiance of the faction which tried to defeat him for the nomination tho first time. At the same time It Is believed that the question of In dorsing Roosevelt Is Involved, and that should Blythe get control of the delegation It tnlght be used to urge the nomination Of Secretary Shaw should the situation war rant this. But from this time on th fight Is to be bitter between the factions. The Blythe people have had full control pf the statp committee at all times nnd will de termine when the convention la to be held. Governor Cummins goes to Washington next week to see the president on behalf of the soldiers of the Fifteenth and Sixteenth Iowa rcRlments, nnd miiy also confer with others on political matters. Northwest Iowa Polities. Ex-Senator. A. B. Funk of Spirit Lake returned to his home today. Ho has been busy as president of the Capitol commis sion. He is regarded as possibly a candi date for congress In tho Eleventh district, but owing to the 111 henlth of his wife Is taking no active part and today dec'ined to decide the question of his candldncy. U. G. Sammls of Ie Mars, who visited here during tho week, tins formnlly announced that he will be a candidate to get the Ply mouth county delegation. W. O. Roach of Lyon county Is a candidate, also Senator Hubbard of Sioux City and Judge Thomas, the present member. Is a candidate. The contest has opened In that district sooner than elsewhere In the state. Lets Nebraska. Man Off. The supreme court of Iowa sustained the right of a Nebraska man to come over Into Iowa and stand trial for a crime with out being BUbject to a suit for breach of promise at the same time. The case was that of Pauline 8. Murray ugainst J. T. Wilson, appellant, from Story county. The plaintiff had sued for breach of promise of marriage and it appears that the notice of the suit was flled on Wilson while he was attending court in Story county, where he had boen Indicted and brought back from his home at Wood River, Neb. He was acquitted. In the civil suit he claimed that he was Immune from the service of the process by reason of the fact that ha was properly attending to his case and did not loiter in Iowa after it was finished. The supreme court. In an opinion by Jus tice Ladd, decided that this position waa correct and the breach of promise case had no "standing In court. Inv a case from Scott county the court decided In favor of a drunken man, or rather that he had proved he was drunk enough to win his case. Real estate agents got one Simon Koch Into a saloon and while he was drunk Induced him to agree to sell a lot for $25,000, and they paid him $500 cash on the contract. -The lower court decided that Koch must fulfill the con tract. On appeal the higher court decides that Koch was too drunk to make' a con tract. The evidence was that the men got him into the saloon antl Importuned him to make the contract; that his wife said he had been on a prolonged spree and that he would get up In the night ani drink; that he admitted he had "taken a pint or so" that morning, and the saloon keeper testified that Koch was very drunk and to his knowledge had been drunk for three weeks, The court refused to sustain a verdict on a contract made under such conditions. The court's decisions wero: Moebzel & Muttnra against Simon Koch, appellant; Scott county. Judge Bollinger; reversed, opinion by Weaver. State against George Starchvlch, appel lant; Appanoose county. Judge' Sloan; stricken from docket. Pauline S. Murray against J. T. Wilson, appellant; SAeuy county. Judge Richard; reversed, by Ladd. Emily T. Anderson, appellant, ngalnst James Cameron; superior court or Keokuk, Judge Hughes; affirmed, by Deemer. August libreeht, appellant, against City of Keokuk; supreme court of Keokuk, Judge Hughes; affirmed, by Bishop. Eugene Melntyre against Gexirge T, Ward, appellant; Pottawattamie county, Judge Thornell; nfllrmid by the court. W. F. Earhart against J. E. Cowles, ap pellant: Adams county, Judge Tawner; ahirmed by Sherwtn. lirnnel Man n Swindler. Governor Cummins has received Infor mation that ojie Peter Solyman, who Is traveling In the state collecting money ostensibly to bring eventy-five Armenian orphans to the United 8ttes, la a fraud I and im poster. Bolymsn secured a letter of ' commendation from the governor a few days ago and had one from Oovcrnor Mickey of Nebraska and letters from many others. A preacher at Pella became sus picious and wrote to a missionary ae"cre tary In New York and got official informa tion as to Solyman and that he Is not an Armenian, but a Persian, and his letters ' which he brought to this country were for- gerles. He has worked successfully In Council Lluffs, Des Moines nnd Bella, and Is supposed to be now In northwest Iowa. Damage Salt Dismissed. The close of the series of sensational In cidents connected with the marriage of F. Wallace like and Mlntde Selgel last sum- j mer waa marked In district court today, l'iko was a music teucher nnd Miss Selgel j a pupil, and their marriage was bitterly opposed by the father of the bride. To j prevent the marriage, as he thought, the . Tather flled a charge against Pike uccuslng him of attempting to extort money from him, declaring that like hSd offered to quit his attentions to the; girl for $500. Pike . was arrested the day he was to have been j marrieel. He gave bill and was married to the girl, then hid her away and gave up tho ball bond, returning to Jail. He did this so that he could file a suit for damages ' against Selgel. He brought the suit for I $5,000. Later all cases were called off and j today the damage case waa stricken from the docket. Accuse an Aged Man. 1 W. W. Steele, the violin maker, who was ' Investigated for his connection with entlc- j lng girls to his room, was placed under ar- ' rest today, evidence of his methods having' been disclosed by Investigation. Steele Is 67 years old and lived lu a small room, where he mended violins. The ofncfrs as sert that he numbers his vlctima, all small girls, at forty, and the name of many are : known. The mother of one girl procured a revolver and started out to kill Steele today, but -was stopped before she could get at 1 him. He Is now In jail, nnd It Is believed the 1 testimony against him will show a shocking case of depravity. Bank Failure at Mount Ayr. News waa received today of the assign ment for the benefit of creditors of Day Dunning, proprietor of the Citizens bank 1 nt Mount Ayr, a private banking tnstttu- ! tlon. The liabilities are shown to be about ! $.100,000. Dunning Is said to hnve speculated : too much and to have loaded up on land 1 nnd to have been too free with his name na aurrty on different notes. The fnllure Is a ' bad one and may Involve many persons. There had been rumors of the weakness of ! the bank and a smnll run precipitated tho ' crisis. I Tho denth of Cashier Vtterback of the I bank at Slgourney. who committed suicide, disclosed the fact that he was about $47,000 , behind. At first It was reported his bank wns all right, but later developments show j It to have been In very bad condition. I Alleges Trust Causes Death. CEDAR FALLS. Ia..
